The poker market expands outside the US
The largest poker agency outside the US felt a rapid increase in demand for marketing investments in spite of Black Friday!

The poker world got a shock on Friday the 15th of April, due to what is now being called ‘Black Friday’. Following a US government crackdown on some of the largest poker sites in the world, players were left with no access to sites and for non-US players, a huge drop in liquidity. However, according to Poker Icons, the poker rooms involved haven’t been resting on their laurels and the demands for their services are increasing rapidly outside the US.
The partners of Poker Icons are clearly moving their marketing money across the Atlantic, focusing on spending them in Europe and elsewhere to make up for the losses in the US. This has led to an increased demand of poker pros outside the US for marketing and PR.

Poker Icons is expanding rapidly and signing pro players from all over the globe to meet these demands. Some of the latest team members to join Poker Icons are Sami “LarsLuzak” Kelopuro, Marc Goodwin, Alex Brenes and Teodor Caraba. Many of the recently signed poker icons are great ambassadors for poker rooms in Europe, Asia and South America.

Poker Icons is now looking for up and coming pros all across the world, but especially in Eastern Europe, Central Europe, South America and Asia. They are also looking for new members of staff in those regions.

“Contrary to the belief in the market, I now see a major increase in activities in Europe. This was a major reason why Poker Icons did not put our efforts in the US markets in the first place.” - Lars Kollind, Poker Icons.

“Joining Poker Icons is the next natural step for my poker career and I hope it will take me to the next level.” – Sami “LarsLuzak” Kelopuro.
